I am a Grade 7 / Championship Handler with my focus being competition agility.

I currently compete in grade 7 with both my competing dogs and train with numerous well know agility trainers, meaning my practical skills are current and up to date. I have a broad knowledge of the practical agility skills as well as the behavior knowledge which underpins my coaching.

I specialise in Problematic Agility Behaviour and help handlers to understand all the ‘in-between’ bits of agility and why they may be experiencing problems.

Problematic behaviour in agility is quite common and is often something that isn’t routinely covered in your standard agility training. When the dog doesn’t behave the way we expect or would like, this can often leave the handler feeling frustrated as it can really set their training back. There is little point training the agility skills if the dog has something emotionally going on, or if their focus isn’t on the handler as they simply will not be able to take in the learning as intended!

I help the handler to understand their individual dog, what is happening and why and then guide them back onto the path of success using kind, ethical training methods, however big or small their goal may be!

I am experienced in working with a variety of breeds, temperaments and ages from puppies to older dogs. If you would like to know more about me click here.

Does your agility dog have all the pieces in place to achieve success?

I am a firm believer that all the pieces need to be in place when training or competing in agility, it isn’t just about the equipment! Join me in my new courses to supercharge your agility and unlock all the levels of success!
